    I found this book after my own dairy allergy progressed to the point of no longer ignoring it. I felt overwhelmed and did not know where to start. Though, I did find some of the ingredients lists to not be my cup of tea, I will say though that this book combined with her website godairyfree.org changed everything for me. It is where I learned a lot of what I know about allergens and it is my go to place for all things food allergy. The part of the book I found most fascinating and appreciated was I found this book after my own dairy allergy progressed to the point of no longer ignoring it.

The part of the book I found most fascinating and appreciated was a section where she informs you about different trials that had been done and what the results were. How being dairy free helped children with certain health issues. In my opinion, it helped me to grasp for the first time, how damaging consuming dairy can be and the idea of the little things that go unnoticed were actually symptoms all along (headaches, stomach aches, lack of focus, ect). I don't particularly follow this cookbook, BUT it did help to create a foundation for me which I truly appreciate and thank her so much for putting this information out there. =)

    The following conversation recently took place in my life: BFF: So, I've been doing some research because of [this thing in her own life], and I'm 99% sure you have a casein intolerance. Me: Noooo, cheese is my favorite. Also, it's my real best friend. BFF: No, I'm serious. Me: I am serious. BFF: Read this, then try going maybe a meal or two without any dairy just for like a couple of weeks, and see how you feel. Me: Prepare to be wrong. [Several weeks later.] Me: Craaaaap. So, yes.

BFF: Read this, then try going maybe a meal or two without any dairy just for like a couple of weeks, and see how you feel. Me: Prepare to be wrong. [Several weeks later.] Me: Craaaaap. So, yes. It turns out that my greatest love is also my greatest enemy. Who knew? I'm still in the beginning stages of this whole journey, so it's been some trial and error. I really like Alisa's site godairyfree.org and saw she had a new version of this book coming out in January 2018, so I decided to ILL the 2008 version of this to see if it might be worth ordering the 2018 version. Now, a great deal has changed in 10 years. I can't imagine how hard going dairy-free might've been ten years ago (not to mention before that, yikes), but I still felt like I grabbed some solid, good information from this as well as some recipes and further resources. I'll most likely go ahead and buy the 2018 version of Go Dairy Free, which is huge for me—I'm a librarian spoiled with riches of free books all around me; I rarely, rarely, rarely buy books. So, that's saying quite a lot. tl;dr: Technically, this is 10 years old, but if you see it super cheap and you're going DF, I'd go ahead and it pick it up for the tips and recipes. Based on this preview, I'm going to get the 2018 version for myself. eta: Right after I wrote this, I was looking for DF cookbooks on Overdrive and Hoopla, aannnnd guess what? The 2018 version is on Hoopla, yessss! My little, shriveled librarian heart grew four sizes today.

    This book provides wonderful information. In general she is unbiased and gives her reasons for organic but doesnt push it. She speaks about the reality of soy, but she uses it anyways because she believes moderation is fine. She doesn't speak about the dangers of peanut butter and isn't aware of the truth behind tofu and of many cooking oils. She was obviously sponsored to recommend clif bars and other bars, because she knows they arent healthy or a good alternative, however she recommends them a This book provides wonderful information.

She was obviously sponsored to recommend clif bars and other bars, because she knows they arent healthy or a good alternative, however she recommends them anyways She seems to be pro things being fortified and vitamins being added to things She does speak about the dangers of supplements, and acknowledges people are going to take them anyways so she provides a list of recommendations, im glad she discusses the dangers of them though I LOVE SO MANY THINGS ABOUT THIS BOOK, it does its job of being a complete "dairy free" guide, however it is not also completely health conscious. It is only dairy free conscious. Which is what it promises, so all of my criticisms don't matter. Most people aren't health conscious anyways so they would hate the book if it was. I am going to give it a 4 out of 5, because I was too upset and distracted by all of the advertisements in the book to give it a 5: the processed crap she recommends which she obviously did only for some sort of monetary reward. BUT like I said, the focus of this is dairy free living, not healthy living. So it still did its job perfectly. And since most people hate cooking, they probably adore the recommendations and use them regularly, despite them being unhealthy. So I actually think most of her audience loves it. I cannot subtract more stars it wouldnt be fair. This is not a health book! This is a dairy free book! and it did its job wonderfully. Everything is easy to accommodate for any allergy, I appreciate that. Oh and the allergy index in the back? freaking genius. Also it references to many blogs, books and videos that are incredibly helpful. I really appreciate her thorough research as well.

    This is a great guide book / cookbook for people who wish to omit dairy from their diets. It covers a lot of information about various food allergies and sensitivities, what ingredients to look out for in foods, suggestions for how to eat out at restaurants, and, of course, recipes. While this book isn't geared explicitly toward vegans (some of the recipes call for eggs, and while the recipes are meat-free, the author doesn't omit meat eating from the rest of the text), it is still a helpful guid This is a great guide book / cookbook for people who wish to omit dairy from their diets.

While this book isn't geared explicitly toward vegans (some of the recipes call for eggs, and while the recipes are meat-free, the author doesn't omit meat eating from the rest of the text), it is still a helpful guide. The recipes are quite extensive, and the author includes how to make various types of non-dairy milks, snacks, desserts, entrees, etc. Some of the recipes are from various vegan blogs, which I found to be pretty cool. I definitely recommend this book for people who are interested in going dairy free, or people who are maybe just beginning to take dairy out of their diets. But the experienced vegan probably already knows most of the tips and tricks of avoiding dairy, and might want to just skip to the recipes.

    3.5 out of 5: A lot of the information in the book seems obvious, but maybe I've just been dealing with allergies for long enough that it isn't new information for me and could be helpful for someone else. However, there were some good looking recipes and I want to try some of them. I wish there were more recipes, but I also know I can look on their website for many of the same recipes. 3.5 out of 5: A lot of the information in the book seems obvious, but maybe I've just been dealing with allergies for long enough that it isn't new information for me and could be helpful for someone else.

    Lots of info, some new to me, some out of date. The 2018 revision of this book should make the 2008 version obsolete. Recipes were less interesting than the commentary. I found a few spices/sauces to try, but I'm not vegan or a big fan of tofu, so many recipes didn't have much appeal. Lots of info, some new to me, some out of date.

    I found this book to be more of a guide book than a read through book. It has wonderful information on allergies to milk and lactose intolerance. The book is divided into six sections - Understanding Dairy and Dairy Free from a Health Perspective, Eating Away From Home, Grocery Shopping and Preparing your Kitchen, All You Ever Wanted to Know About Dairy Substitutes, Recipes and Recommendations, and More Recommended Resources. It was hard to admit and hard to give up, but I do much better without I found this book to be more of a guide book than a read through book.

    Alisa Fleming provides a thorough resource guide for all who want to go dairy free. I have been dairy free for three years and wish I would have read this book when I first began my journey. Her recommendations are similar to what I discovered through trial and error. I love that she included recipes and the ratios to substitute alternatives for milk products in recipes. I will definitely keep this guide handy as I continue my dairy free life.

    This is a fantastic book if you're looking to remove dairy from your life for whatever reason. This is not just a "crazy vegan" book! She has practical ideas for taking dairy out of your diet, combined with resources on how to get all the ingredients that she lists out as substitutes. The recipes are easy, practical, and the ones I've tried have been very tasty. This is an excellent resource and I highly recommend it.

    I had gotten this book thinking it was a cook book with lots of photos, but it is more informative about allergies, sensitives, and lactose intolerance. It does include recipes in later chapters, with helpful tips about substituting for non-dairy foods. I learned a lot about what I can and cannot eat, foods I should avoid, and foods I should be eating. 4/5stars

    Great explanation of everything dairy including infant allergies, lactose intolerance, and dairy free living. All the recipes are great that I've tried so far plus there is a whole list of how to find or make dairy substitutions - even cheese sauce!

    Awesome! I picked this book up at a library on a whim, but it turned out to be such a blessing. Wow! I have learned a lot about this subject through this book. The recipe section is wonderful too. Great writing by this author. Highly recommend this book if you have a need.

    This book is like a rest stop welcome center. It lists plenty of resources (mostly websites). However, the book itself isn't much to look at. This book is like a rest stop welcome center. It lists plenty of resources (mostly websites). However, the book itself isn't much to look at.

    I really liked that there were substitutions for sweetened condensed milk, creamer, etc.
